Authorised Tesla Energy reseller Rubicon has finalised the recommended retail prices of the Tesla Powerwall kits that will go on sale in South Africa.
Only Tesla-approved installers will sell and fit the kits, with the first group of South African installers set to receive their training in the coming weeks.
The kits are based on the Tesla Powerwall home battery and the StorEdge inverter system from SolarEdge.
Prices remain subject to the exchange rate of the rand against the US dollar, and exclude installation.
Installation costs will vary from home to home, and Rubicon said an energy meter may also be required for installations which do not allow feedback into the grid.
The warranty length of the major components of the kits are as follows.
- Tesla Powerwall: 10 years
- SolarEdge inverter: 12 years
- Solar Panels: 25 years
Kit 1 (RUB-TES) – R116,000 excl. VAT
A basic system for an existing solar installation, or as a backup or peak power system.
Kit 2 (RUB-TES3) – R169,000 excl. VAT
A Tesla/SolarEdge package with 3kWp of solar panels.
Kit 3 (RUB-TES5) – R210,000 excl. VAT

Kit 4 (RUB-TES5.2) – R272,000 excl. VAT
A top-of-the-line system similar to the one above with 5kWp of solar panels – but with two Tesla Powerwall units.
